Pft, the animals' comments amused me to no end. xD Poor Shido, sometimes it must be a curse being able to hear what animals say.

wheeheehee! Sweet fic I like Shido x Madoka and I think you did a good job with it P
| madoka jieshika chapter 1 . 5/12/2006
lovely fic. you didn't mess anything up. hilarious the way the animals would just converse with him and each time they open their mouths (er, beaks, jaws, hehehe...) nothing good comes out. it's quite difficult to look for fics like these. usually, the characters are too ooc... but they weren't in your story. you managed to keep their personalities in tact, in which other authors just intend to forget. anyway, you have a great story, a great depiction of personalities both by shido and madoka, and i like the animals (,)
hehehe... typical of shido to be a tough guy when it comes to battle, and then becomes a shy, softie when it comes to madoka.
my main point? excellent fic.

Believe me, you screwed up nothing. It was excellent. I know how hard it is to write in-character ShidoxMadoka, (embarrassed as I am to say it, I even gave up a long time ago) and I absolutely loved this fic. The animals, as blatantly unhelpful as they were, (brilliant crow, that) were actually hilarious and perfectly believable. And the hesitancy between Shido and Madoka, that lingering tentativeness, well, the visual picture it painted seemed incredibly real.
But, that exchange:
[“Sorry,” he muttered, a dark flush of red spreading along his tanned cheeks.
At the new weight, Madoka tensed for a moment. Then, realizing what it was, she tentatively turned her hand over so that her palm could meet his and their fingers intertwined. She gave him a gentle smile, her own face turning rather pink.
“Thank you…Shido-san.” And she daringly rested her head against his broad shoulder, scarcely breathing as she waited for his reaction.]
Well, unless Madoka can read minds now, the dialogue was a bit disjointed. And the last part of it, "as she waited for his reaction," that looked a bit stilted, but that's just me.
Otehrwise, I absolutely loved it.

| Indygodusk chapter 1 . 10/5/2005
That was hilarious and adorable at the same time. I really enjoyed the animal commentary and Shido's replies. This was wonderful. Thank you for making work a little more bearable today! (So I'm reading this at work after a friend referred it to me, bad me!)

A really funny idea and I really enjoyed it. I was strating to worry about not being able to find any Shido/Madoka fics, so glad I found yours. Keep up your good work.

| Rabid Lola chapter 1 . 7/25/2005
Hee, the "Shido wasn't here to think about Midou Ban" and then following it up with something about love..amused me. XD Sorry. It just did. _
"It was still growing, threatening to fill him up until he could no longer concentrate on anything else but Madoka and her music." - ...woah. Nice. Very apt description. (NOT indigestion. Got it. :D)
" beenstaying with herfor" -QuickEdit. Hehe.
"but they all knew Shido couldn't sing.." XD Amen. Don't make Madoka-chan deaf, please.
...The description of the crocodiles...and the HUMPING.. XD Oh dear.
...NO. Shido canNOT court like Ginji does. That'd be...just...wrong. (But, very amusing. XD) Oh, but the animals SO have the truth of it. I like the silence being comfortable, though, and not charged with discomfort...nor with sexual tension. . Hehe.
Schnookums. XD Wahaha.
You did this ShidoxMadoka WELL. _ Kudos! WRITE MORE! XD Please? It's always nice to see a nice new ficcie. :)
